Why are you taking the Walk The Walk Challenge?
The term “Walk The Walk” means to practice what you preach and that’s why I’m taking this challenge. I stay active. I’m not just saying I do this, I live this and I want to see others live it, too!
What do you hope to get out of it?
I want to show others that taking the steps, literally and figuratively, to gain control of your fitness level and health takes nothing more than your own two feet.
What’s your strategy to win?
I am definitely pulling the wedding card. Not only am I participating in Walk the Walk, but I’m also doing the big WALK down the aisle to marry the greatest guy I know at the end of September. My good friend Polly the Pedometer will be my constant reminder to go for a stroll for a little stress relief during the wedding planning home stretch, or to go for that run on the greenway to feel good on my wedding day!
What’s your advice for people trying to get more active?
Find a friend and do it together. The buddy system works every time!
Why should followers donate to NoFizzUSA and pledge to support you during the event?
Followers should donate to support me in my Walk the Walk effort because not only is it an important cause, but a fun one that I back wholeheartedly. Also there are three of us going on our honeymoon: my fiance, me and Polly. Don’t you want to support Polly the Pedometer’s Mexican getaway and her run up the stairs of the Mayan ruins? I’m pretty sure I’m the only one to name my pedometer friend and to take her out of the country. After this, NoFizzUSA just might need to go global: NoFizzWorld!
